Each Thursday, MASN airs a new “Covering the Bases” segment with a different Oriole during that night’s game. Throughout the game, fans get to peek inside the childhoods, early baseball days, and adolescent years of their favorite Birds courtesy of baby photos, stories from coaches and anecdotes from family members and friends.
Tonight, MASN is Covering the Bases with still new Oriole catcher Matt Wieters.
